Haul: MAC (eye products)

Left to Right: Amber lights, Dazzlelight, Woodwinked

So I took advantage of the MAC F&F sale with for 25% off! :) I'm too sunburned to even attempt to use these and look nice though, but I'll post pics when I do! I picked up some shadows, a paint pot, an eyeliner and a lipstick. :) Here's some pictures and swatches!

Left to Right: Amber lights, Dazzlelight, Woodwinked.

Amber lights (Frost)
I thought this was kind of a nice summery color. It's kind of bronze-ie, orange-ie, brown-ie, gold-ie... all rolled into one! The MAC website describes it as: Peachy-brown with shimmer. The swatch on the website is not NEARLY as vivid as the actual color in real life.

Dazzlelight (Veluxe Pearl)
This color is like an off-white beige color with a sheen to it. Perfect for highlighting the brow bone! MAC describes it as: Neutral with shimmer. The swatch on the website is TOO beige. The actual color in real life is a few shades lighter than that swatch.

Woodwinked (Veluxe Pearl)
This color kind of reminds me of a lighter shade of Satin Taupe in the pan, but in the swatch, it appears much lighter. The MAC website decribes it as: Warm antique gold, but I'd say it's more of a warm antique gold/brown. Haha! There's definitely a goldy sheen to it. The swatch on the website is actually pretty close to the color in real life. :) You just can't see the sheen.

Below: Rubenesque Paint Pot (Frost)

*Thats a glass bubble in the bottom of the container. Not sure if that's typical of all paint pots, or just a flaw with mine. Either way, it does not affect the product in the container.

Paint pots are firm, cream eye shadows. You barely need to touch it at all to get the product on your finger. Rubenesque, the color I purchased, is another summery color. It's kind of similiar to Amber Lights eye shadow but in a cream form. It's also a little lighter. I'm excited to layer them!

MAC describes Rubenesque as: Golden peach w/gold pearl, but the swatch on the website is not as vivid as the actual color. The website swatch looks a little boring. lol

I also ordered the MAC Smolder Eye Kohl. It's super creamy. A really deep black. Definitely need to set it with powder, luckily, I have MAC Carbon for that! Haha! I heard it was "hard" to use because it's so smooth, but we shall see after my sunburn clears up! Eek!

Anyway, I also ordered Myth lipstick, but I didn't receive it in my package. I called MAC today with the 1-800 number on my order slip and told them and they are going to 2-day ship it to me. :) The whole conversation with the rep took about 10 seconds. Haha. :) That's what I like! I'll post pics of it when I get it!

Hope this helped someone!
